One days left until I am jumping into the airplane to Taipei – leaving Shanghai after quite a “long” time.. it was actually way too short.
For people back home in Germany time seems to stand still while my time here in Shanghai is just running away.
I can’t really remember how it was when i first touched the Chinese ground. I did so many things in such a short time, so words can’t describe the experiences and memories that were created. I think most of the people in my age who likes to travel as much as I do, understand how Iam feeling right now and know how hard it is to go back. I am feeling home right here right now, found irreplaceable friends, know the streets in Shanghai and got a way of life. But “all good things must come to an end” – this is what everyone says. When a door is closed a new door will open…i hope its true.
Of course I will come back to Shanghai again, maybe already next summer hehe. But before I plan anything big I have to go back to Germany first. I miss my family and friends back there but I will miss this life here, as well. It is always so hard for me to leave Asia. I think Asia is really the place I should be for the rest of my life.
Shanghai is really an impressive and multicultural city with so much happening going on, every day. From 5am in the morning going to the park seeing old people doing Taiche, to be able to get hot food anytime anywhere or doing ganbei. To get anything that you can imagine and to bargain down the price. Or partying with the locals and dancing in the clubs until stupid o’ clock. Shanghai has everything for everyone – no matter what taste.

Here I have some suggestions for you guys, when you come to Shanghai one day:
